About Verandah:

Located in the gated Verandah Community with 2 professional golf courses - a Robert Cupp and a Jack Nicholas designed course. Our residents choose from activities that celebrate the tropical climate and nature of Southwest Florida, all centered around a very-social clubhouse scene where new friendships are made every day.

We do nature better than anyone in the region. Our 9-mile system of boardwalks and trails intertwine through an immense preserve that includes acres of ancient, shady oaks and the winding Orange River, where you can fish or kayak among the manatee and birds.

Be it golf or weight-training, tennis or drinks at the 19th hole, you'll find that life in Verandah is over-committed in all the right ways.

~ Tee up on our two world-class courses: Old Orange by Bob Cupp
and Whispering Oak by Jack Nicklaus and Jack Nicklaus II.

~ Ace it on our five Har-Tru tennis courts.
~ Burn it in our heated junior-Olympic pool.
~ Tone it in our state-of-the-art fitness center.
~ Rejuvenate with our spa services.
~ Savor flavors at exquisite indoor and al fresco dining.
~ Gather at the bar in River House lounge.

Verandah. A place where the days are never long enough. 3 minutes from I-75 and miles away from the ordinary … in a setting perfect for living large: Award-winning golf courses. Nature trails and preserves. An ancient oak-shaded river that intertwines its way through neighborhoods of traditional Florida architecture. And a deluxe clubhouse, bursting with options. So much to do, you’ll never want to leave.

We're a master-planned community that is also masterfully placed. Just three minutes off I-75, away from the crowds and time-consuming traffic. Ten minutes to the airport. Twenty minutes to the beaches. One minute to the Shops at Verandah, which include a Publix grocery store.

Then again, with our own river and nature preserve and award-winning restaurant and golf courses and deluxe clubhouse … is there really any need to leave at all?

Nearby are restaurants, boating, beaches, and shopping including the major outlet mall.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We are a working Executive couple from Cincinnati, Ohio. We fell in love with the Verandah community and the Ft Myers area. We have appointed our vacation home with the best of everything for our --and your-- enjoyment! We know you will love it as much as we do!

Why the Owner Chose Fort Myers, FL, USA:
The Verandah community is outstanding, with 2 championship golf courses, world class tennis and fitness center, kayaking, and close by beaches. The community was designed with nature in mind. The old Live Oaks throughout the community as well as the mature vegetation and mangroves adds to the distinct plantation setting. It really is heaven on earth!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The layout of our home is amazing! The Great Room opens fully by 4 door sliders into the Lanai where you can relax at the heated pool or spa/hot tub, while enjoying nature and the lake. The Old Orange golf course holes #2 and #3 are just across the lake. Bicycles are provided for enjoyment of the entire Verandah resort. The ability to watch the wildlife, many species of birds including eagles, and the sounds of the nature will soothe you and recharge your soul.
